First District congressional challenger pushes incumbent


Tim Walz was one of the first candidates interviewed on Inside Minnesota Politics about 18 months ago. Back then, very few people knew who he was and even fewer gave him any chance of unseating incumbent Gil Gutknecht in Minnesota’s First Congressional District. Now by anybody polls, this is a close race with the most recent polls showing Walz ahead.

Tim was nice enough to take the time to stop by the Inside Minnesota Politics studios and catch us up on the events of the last 18 months. Listen as Tim talks about the stark differences between him and his opponent on the Iraq war and many other issues. A very inspiring discussion.
